Can the TC be accessed from outside the home network? i.e. Can I use the TC (at home) to back up both my home macbook pro and mac pro at work via TM?

  • Hi,

    Technically - yes. Using Back to my Mac, which is actually built in to the Time Capsule, you can actually see it provided the same Mobile Me credentials are signed in on each device. Eg: I have a work Mac Mini, Home Macbook Pro and a Home Time Capsule. In work I can see and access all the files on my Time Capsule and Home Macbook Pro provided the devices are on. If no computer is powered on at home but the Time Capsule is, I can use it regardless. Mobile Me is required as it uses the service to advertise the devices outside of a local network.
